Line: Iowa State by 14 ½

Series Record: Kansas leads 49-35-6

Last Meeting: Iowa State won 28-16 in 2010

WHAT'S AT STAKE

Iowa State can likely forget about reaching bowl eligibility if they lose to the Jayhawks, since their remaining three opponents are ranked. Kansas is looking to snap a six-game losing streak.

KEY MATCHUP

Kansas defense vs. Iowa State running backs. Kansas let up 441 yards rushing to Texas last week. Iowa State ran for 386 yards against Texas Tech, its highest total in 10 years. Expect the Cyclones to establish the run early against the Jayhawks

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Kansas: QB Jordan Webb. He threw for a season-low 48 yards in the loss to the Longhorns but has 12 TD throws this season

Iowa State: RB James White. He had 138 yards rushing against the Red Raiders and will likely get a ton of carries on Saturday
